At Grove School, we hope that creativity is a part of our campus’ culture and one of our goals is for art to be everywhere. In addition to sculptures that can be found throughout the campus, the school also offers students the opportunity to take a range of electives in the Fine Arts.
Students can also participate in after-school clubs that are geared towards painting, photography, and other artistic activities. And in addition to the school’s annual Evening of the Arts, the school presents Art Fairs for the entire community to attend, in which the work of students is showcased and on display. We want all of our students to explore the arts – for some, this can be a creative outlet, and for others it can be essential therapy. Our Arts program is proud to present students with so many options.
A Career in Film, Theater and/or Television
Grades: 9, 10, 11, 12
Students will learn to analyze the business behind the scenes of the movies they so often enjoy. They will develop a thorough understanding of the Hollywood studio system, the importance and implications of box-office performances, the five steps crucial to the filmmaking process, and how to schedule and budget a feature-length motion picture. Students will learn how the process is both similar and different to that of producing modern-day television. Students will also explore theater from a behind-the-scenes perspective. They will learn how an idea is transformed from a concept into a fully-realized Broadway show, with a thorough understanding of each step within the process. Students will not only learn the “language” and lingo of the entertainment business, they will also learn about various (yet specific) careers and jobs that might be of interest for them to pursue as future ambitions.
